Ate here a few weeks ago and the brisket is dry and very overpriced. There is no comparison between this and Lum's, which is right down the street. In fact, Lum's wins hands down. It is very sad this joint has the same name as...More

We wanted BBQ before we headed back to El Paso. There was a long line upon arrival so we realized everyone else was there for the lunch rush. An employee brought samples of their sausage which was delicious. Nice gesture for us waiting patrons. The...More

The BBQ here takes a weak second to Lums. The brisket tasted good enough but was a bit too fatty. Very average at best.

Had eaten at the original and was thinking this would at least be close. On the big sign out front it says it is the original and NOT a franchise.Went in and ordered a brisket and rib 2 meat plate. Ask the girl who really...More

This place is a ripoff. We were stuck at the truck stop for a few days due to weather, and who doesn’t like some good bbq? Only problem was this wasn’t good bbq. Personally I am a rib guy so my choice was easy. Rib...More
